It has been twenty years since Justine Fraser last saw Nicky Bennet, twenty years since he abruptly took off for Hollywood. Justine cannot forget his offbeat charisma, his sly half-smile, or the time he surprised her by flying across the Atlantic to propose to her on a beach. But she also cannot forget the way he disappeared without a word of explanation.
Now reports have surfaced that Nicky has vanished again, this time from the set of his next film, leaving behind a mysteriously cryptic note, which Justine is sure is a message to her. Against the advice of her friends, she sets off on a journey to America, to the past, and to Nicky, in search of the real reasons behind his disappearance. But what she will ultimately discover is the shocking and disturbing truth about her relationship with Nicky Bennet . . . which is not at all how she remembers it.
